Synopsis: An invaluable guide to diagnosing the full range of problems in internal medicine

From Symptom to Diagnosis

Siegenthalerâ s Differential Diagnosis in Internal Medicineâ provides a practice-oriented approach to mastering the diagnostic challenges encountered in internal medicine. Organized according to symptoms, the book enables the reader to learn by tracing the path from presenting signs to diagnosis. Different chapters address common classes of symptoms including fever, pain, hematologic symptoms, pulmonary and cardiac symptoms, gastrointestinal symptoms, nephrologic symptoms, and neurologic symptoms. Each chapter presents a comprehensive overview of the methodology and diagnostic tools and tests along with the essential pathophysiologic background information that will guide the reader toward a definitive diagnosis.

Features:

- Organized by functional system and symptom constellations

- Coverage of all subspecialties in internal medicine, with special consideration of related subjects, such as dermatology, neurology, and rheumatology

- Discussion of typical findings and signs for differentiation of all common, rare, and â exoticâ diseases with pathophysiologic background information

- More than 780 stunning figures demonstrating key concepts

- Instructive tables and differential diagnostic algorithms summarizing symptoms and diagnostic pathways

- Guidance for the differential diagnostic evaluation of common laboratory test results, including step-by-step plans for further diagnosis

With its unique symptom-to-diagnosis approach, Differential Diagnosis in Internal Medicineâ is ideal for medical students, residents, and practitioners requiring an authoritative reference in the clinical setting.

Walter Siegenthaler, MD, is Professor Emeritus of Internal Medicine at the University of Zürich, Switzerland.

From the Back Cover:

A pragmatic approach to differential diagnosis gives rapid, reliable answers to these questions: Which diseases are likely? What causes them? What are the typical characteristics of these disorders? Do they correspond with the symptoms in question? How can the preliminary diagnosis be confirmed? Siegenthaler's new Differential Diagnosis in Internal Medicine guides the reader through the challenges of differential diagnosis across the spectrum of internal medicine.

Practice-orientated learning:

  • Identify and understand key symptoms
  • Consider the whole patient in selecting possible diseases
  • Evaluate, exclude or confirm possible diagnoses
  • Make the correct diagnosis using an appropriate diagnostic procedure

Professor Walter Siegenthaler brings decades of international experience in clinical practice, teaching and writing on internal medicine to this new book. The book also benefits from close cooperation with the leaders of the specialist internal medicine departments at the University Hospital Zrich, and of other institutions and disciplines. The generalist and specialist aspects of internal medicine are thereby brought together to enhance the approach to the patient.

The book is directed at medical students, residents in most areas of medicine, practitioners of internal medicine, general practitioners, dermatologists, neurologists and rheumatologists and those involved with the basic subjects in medicine who wish to gain competence and knowledge in internal medicine.

From Symptom to Diagnosis:

  • Organized by functional system and symptom constellations
  • Covers all fields of internal medicine plus special treatment of subjects dermatology, neurology and rheumatology
  • Typical findings and signs for differentiation of all common, rare and even exotic diseases with pathophysiological background information
  • Nearly 1000 stunning figures and many instructive table-format overviews and differential diagnostic algorithms
  • Differential diagnostic evaluation of common laboratory test results, including step-by-step plans for further diagnosis
  • Learn by tracing the path from symptom to diagnosis, just as the physician encounters the situation in practice!
